Covington & Zand Core Values
We embrace diversity.
We are open-minded, nonjudgmental people. We recognize that it’s our differences that make the world such a fascinating place. At the same time, we understand that despite our diversity, most people really have a lot in common at their core. We all love, feel pain, and desire happiness. Race, religion, culture, national origin, gender, gender identity – there are so many ways we as humans differ from one another. And, if we have a heart-to-heart with someone from a different race or different country or different whatever, we can understand them and realize that this other person is not so different from us, after all. We are here to help people from all backgrounds.
We treat people with compassion.
When people come to us with their family law problem, they are often facing one of the most difficult situations they’ve ever faced. Often, family law clients are not functioning their best – they might be scared, hurt, angry, confused, lost, desperate. We understand how hard this process is and our goal is to help our clients and their families through the process with as little pain as possible.
We have integrity.
Both of us have an excellent reputation among other attorneys, the judges, and court staff, reputations that have developed over years of practice. We are truthful with our clients, even when our clients don’t want to hear the truth. We care about how what we do in our practice affects our souls, and we strive to never violate our core values in a way that denigrates our karma. Vonda’s father taught her to always take a hard right over an easy wrong, and it is a lesson that we apply to our practice. We say what we mean and we mean what we say, and those who know us know this.
